“My Hero Academia” (僕ぼくのヒーローアカデミア / Boku no Hīrō Akademia?) is a Japanese anime series based on the manga by Kōhei Horikoshi, produced by Studio Bones and licensed by FUNimation Entertainment for English broadcast and distribution. It premiered April 3rd, 2016 and has aired three seasons to date with a fourth slated for release on October 12th, 2019. Wikipedia describes the plot thusly: “In a world where people with superpowers known as “Quirks” (個性 / Kosei) are the norm, ‘Izuku Midoriya’ has dreams of one day becoming a “Hero” despite being bullied by his classmates for not having a Quirk. After being the only one to try and save his childhood bully ‘Katsuki Bakugo’ from a villain, ‘All Might’ — Japan’s greatest Hero — saves Izuku and bestows upon him his own Quirk, “One For All.” The story follows Izuku’s entrance into U.A. High School (雄英高校 / Yūei Kōkō), a school that cultivates the next generation of superheroes. As Izuku and his new friends try to balance their Hero training with ordinary school duties, they must face new challenges. One of these challenges includes the “League of Villains” — an evil organization established by All Might’s archenemy “All For One” which has plans to destroy all Heroes and take control of society.”
